Flower Travellin' Band - Satori
Artist: Flower Travellin' Band
Genre: Psychedelic Rock
This is a psychedelic rock gem from Japan, the home of some of the weirdest psychedelia I've come across. There is a notable Black Sabbath influence and I think it is heavy enough to please any heavy metal fan (and it's listed on metal-archives), but I would stop short of calling this a heavy metal album. It's just too... hippie. The whole album might as well be a single track, for how all the songs seem to build off each other, and you just might feel that you are on a deranged trip in the time of Hunter S. Thompson.
